Jeff Ross is a respected comedian, writer, director, and producer also known as “The Roastmaster General.”
Most recently Jeff has been on tour with Dave Attell performing their two man stand up “Bumping Mics.” After the success of their Netflix special of the same name they are touring the country with all new material. “Bumping Mics” is rapid fire two man stand up that has a joke per minute ratio that is off the rails. Jeff and Dave are headliners in their own right, but when they combine forces it's a whole other beast that can't be tamed.
Also on Netflix is a series called “Historical Roasts” where Jeff hosts his dream roasts with some of the most famous people in history. Some of the honorees include Abraham Lincoln, Freddie Mercury, MLK, and Anne Frank.
As a regular on the Comedy Central Roasts, Jeff has roasted many infamous stars including Alec Baldwin, Bruce Willis, Justin Bieber, Roseanne Barr, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, and The President of The United States Donald Trump.
These roasts have become a mainstay in popular culture and propelled roasting into the public eye. Building on their success, Jeff launched “Jeff Ross Presents Roast Battle”, a competition show in which comics go mic to mic in a battle of wits. Judged by some of the best comedy minds of our generation, including Jimmy Kimmel, Kevin Hart ,and Seth Rogen, Roast Battle has introduced new stars and started a movement.
Comedy Central has since taken the format international, producing versions of the show in Britain and South Africa, while homegrown “Roast Battles” continue to pop up at comedy clubs all across the world.
His podcast “Thick Skin with Jeff Ross” hit the internet airwaves last year and has built a loyal listenership that he has deemed his “Emotional Support Humans.” They come to hear Jeff talk about “Touchy Subjects,” honor the recently deceased in his “Roast In Peace” segment, and most of all they come to listen to him talk to his friends who often come by to have some unconventional conversations. Past guests include John Mayer, Bob Saget, Jeff Garlin, Judd Apatow, Cesar Milan, Macaulay Culkin, & Gary Clark Jr.
Jeff's most recent comedy specials turn roasting into social commentary. With Jeff Ross Roasts Criminals, Jeff Ross Roasts Cops, and Jeff Ross Roasts The Border, Jeff has shed light on some of the more polarizing political issues of our time. These specials have taken him to a maximum security prison, the Boston Police Department, and both sides of the Mexican border. Jeff has immersed himself in these communities and then roasted them.
Jeff also regularly tours with the USO to perform for our troops overseas. Recently Jeff traveled to Alaska with Seth Green to entertain the soldiers stationed in isolation away from friends, family, and sunshine. Before that he was in Iraq with The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, and performed holiday shows for the soldiers stationed there.
Acting wise you may have seen his turn as “D.C. Doug” in the Bryan Cranston Produced “Sneaky Pete.” Recently, Jeff has also lent his voice to cartoons, with performances in Future Worm, Penn Zero: Part Time Hero, The Emoji Movie, and as series regular “Hook Foot” on the popular Disney show Tangled. Soon you’ll be hear him again in the upcoming animated feature “Rumble.”
The Roastmaster General is a one man verbal assault unit that takes no prisoners. So what are you waiting for? Come to his shows and see if you have what it takes to get roasted by The Roastmaster General.
